From May 21 through Labor Day, Wheels Up members will be able to book seats on a shuttle between Westchester County Airport and Nantucket

Wheels Up announced today it is resuming its summer shuttle service with round trip flights from Westchester County Airport (HPN) to Nantucket Memorial Airport (ACK). Flights begin Friday, May 21, 2021, and last through Labor Day weekend.

Members will be able to book directly in the Wheels Up app and pay by seat. Flights are being operated by the King Air 350i.

For the health and safety of all members and the crew, all flights will abide by Wheels Up Safe Passage health and safety protocols and, in accordance with federal guidelines. All passengers will be required to wear a face-covering while inside FBOs and during flight.

“We are thrilled to be kicking off the summer season with our sought-after Westchester to Nantucket Shuttle and offering our members an efficient way to get to their favorite New England island destination,” said Gail Grimmett, Chief Experience Officer at Wheels Up.

She continued, “This is one of our most popular routes throughout the warmer months, and we are happy that our members are able to enjoy the benefits of our pay-by-the-seat shuttle services while delivering the exceptional Wheels Up service that they receive whenever they fly with us.”

Westchester to Nantucket flight schedule

The shuttle will operate one-way flights each Friday at 5 pm from HPN to ACK. Return flights will depart ACK for HPN each Sunday at 5 pm. Holiday weekends will operate on a special schedule departing Thursdays and returning Mondays. 

Members will enjoy signature Wheels Up hospitality. There will be a concierge welcome service at HPN as part of the on-the-ground experience. The cost per seat on each leg of the shuttle flight is $795. Members may book up to four seats per flight, pending availability.

Earlier this week, Wheels Up announced expanded access for members to Inspirato. The luxury travel subscription club currently offers 16 vacation options on the island.
